The trip overall was above expectations. Nobody felt rushed and the itinerary was spot on with a mix of wineries. It’s the small things that count. Rob would make sure everyone was ok, turn on the air conditioning to cool the van prior to us entering. He cracked a few jokes (ask him about the blue cat) haha. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to do a tour. I would rate him and the overall tour 12/10 Thanks again for putting together this amazing tour and you really get value for money.

good selection of wineries and excellent lunch and knowledgeable guide if there was a downside some of the other clients were a bit on the loud side and did not seem that interested in hearing about the fascinating history from our guide. He coped well with the situation all credit!

Sometimes a bit difficult but still suitable for a 5th grader! Very well enjoyed!

lovely trip fantastic views. would highly recommend this trip.

Enjoyable day. Fantastic tour and friendly tour guided.
